I have brewed it several ways: I've used a tea basket such as you might have inside a tea pot (swishing it around to actively steep), fill-your-own tea bags, and an AeroPress. It takes a few minutes to steep fully, so I've sometimes reheated the brew in the microwave for a minute. Of those methods I like the tea basket the best and the fill-your-own tea bags the least. I am going to get a French press, which I've read as a recommended method for brewing this roast.
Definitely try it!
The Maya blend is wonderful. It's got just a hint of spice (cinnamon and hot pepper), and that pairs really well with the chocolate. The hot pepper provides a little bit of a kick but it blends really well with the other flavors (and doesn't leave your mouth burning -- it's really just a small amount).
The whole experience of making and drinking this is fun. When you open the package, it smells amazing. If you use a coffee maker (you can also use a French press, though I haven't tried that), it comes out at the perfect temperature. (Please note: the bag says to use a metal permament filter in the coffee maker and I'd agree with this. I've tried both metal and paper and the oils from the cocoa tend to clog the paper filters.) I add just a touch of skim milk and some Equal or stevia and this totally feels decadent -- like drinking hot chocolate -- but without all the calories. (This does have about 10 calories per serving; using milk would add a few more calories.)
While you will have to experiment to find the perfect amount of Crio Bru for you, I find that three tablespoons in the coffee filter make about 4 "cups" (5.5 ounce coffee cups, that is) at a strength I like. This is low- to no-caffeine so it won't keep you up at night (trust me, I've tried it pretty late at night). While roasting of the cocoa beans may degrade some of the nutrients, overall, you're getting a nice antioxidant boost when you drink this, as well.
I'm so glad I found Crio Bru!

The product looks like crushed cocoa nibs which are OK on their own if you know what you are doing. However, in the K-Cup style packaging, it performed quite poorly. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Mark
